Significance of ISO 26262 - Functional Safety Analysis in Automotive H/W and S/W
With the anticipated release of ISO 26262 – the standard for Automotive Functional
Safety – later this summer, Omnex has received a number of requests to host a second
webinar to serve as an overview of ISO 26262.
Chad Kymal, founder and CTO of Omnex and Greg Gruska COO for Omnex will be conducting
the overview. Both Chad and Greg have extensive experience in Automotive QMS and

software for Functional Safety Analysis – which has already been adopted by many
OEMs in Europe and Japan.

are designing. ISO 26262, which is the Functional Safety Analysis standard comprised
of 10 parts, will be released shortly; but even before its release, it is widely
being used by European and US Automotive companies. It is being adopted by many
Tier One automotive organizations who are finding ISO 26262 conformance a requirement
in their Request for Quotes. It is only a matter of time before this permeates to
Semiconductor Organizations and Software companies as well. Omnex customers in Silicon
Valley have already seen these requirements as far back as two years ago.
The integration of software with hardware was highlighted in the Toyota sudden acceleration
incident. Most Automotive CEOs and Boards have taken the concept of functional safety
to heart and see newly developed electronics and electronic controls, software,
and sensors as fraught with risk to their organizations and have been encouraging
the use of risk mitigation steps with the implementation of ISO 26262 and the Automotive
It is clear ISO 26262 is here to stay. Join us for a free presentation that explains
the ISO 26262 standard and a call of action to those in charge of New Product Development,
Functional Safety or Quality.
